Ghanaians descend on Akufo-Addo over his tweet to France




The president of Ghana has incurred the wrath of the citizenry over a tweet he shared to commiserate with France, Ghanaweb is reporting.

News broke last night of fire that gutted the Notre Dame Cathedral destroying properties worth millions of dollars and as best international relations practices, the president of Ghana sent out a few heart-warming tweets to commiserate with the people of France but Ghanaians will not have it! 

The president’s tweets were welcomed with retweets and replies of Ghanaians showing anger and dissatisfaction. According to their responses, the president is too quick to offer condolences and sympathies to people outside his jurisdiction whiles his own people suffer. 

Many of the tweets reminded the president of the recent heavy downpour of rains that killed over five people and destroyed many homes, and the simple question from these Ghanaians is where is the president’s tweet to commiserate with his own people? 

Read the president’s tweet and the replies below:

You're so fast to tweet when something happens outside Ghana but it takes days, sometimes weeks to tweet about things happening here. Smh

Hypocrisy is really killing Africans and our leaders...Why can’t a president have such a heart for his citizens but rather outsiders???#NanaAddo love your citizens.

This is how our lights are blinking, for about a month and telling us it's a fault, you are sending condolences to a country who can within about 5 months renovate that structure. Mind your business
NDC time - Dumsor
NPP time - Fault
